Predictions of compounds in the family of delafossites

  • B. V. Beznosikov
  • K. S. AleksandrovEmail author


This paper reports the results of our crystal-chemical analysis of structures from the delafossite family A+B3+X2, where A and B are cations, and is oxygen. The family is represented by structures of two types, CuFeO2 and α-NaFeO2 (R \( \bar 3 \) m, Z = 1). Predictions of new compounds are presented. About a hundred new crystals can be synthesized.
